January Update â€“
Ring in the new year!
Hello all â€“
Happy New Year! Hope you had a great break, back in the mists of timeâ€¦ To kick off the year, weâ€™re starting with a preview of our 2015 Prospectus. Have a look, and feel free to get in touch if you see something of particular interest â€“ we welcome your input.
For another fresh start, Future London Leaders Round 9 got going on January 14th, with a new get-down-to-business launch format (see below). The same week, FLL Round 8 tested tough leadership situations, and Leaders Plus got the felt pens out with Urban Graphics and PTE for a clearer sense of how to communicate a project vision to different audiences â€“ and to contractors.
On the home front, itâ€™s farewell and thanks to Alex Bishop, returning to the Netherlands, and a huge thanks to Jennifer Johnson, who leaves us today to take up a Community Planner post at John Thompson & Partners. In her 2.5 years with Future of London, she's delivered some of our most notable reports and programmes, and helped get FoL where it is today. She will be missed, but we wish her all the best in her journey!
Alexei Schwab, who many of you will know from his work on membership, field trips and other programmes, will step into Jenn's role, and we're also about to confirm two new hires, so keep an eye out for their names on the website and in the next bulletin.
In closing, a warm welcome to new sponsor ING Media, who've signed on to help deliver an Inward Investment briefing in time for MIPIM. Keep an eye out for that!
Thanks all, and see you out there â€“
